I think you need to supply more info, What year and engine type, what code reader did you use and what codes did it bring up. A lot of code readers give you duff info the only one that works properly is lexia fom what I have read about it. Was the car running different to bring on the light.

The fault is not with the instrument but the person interpreting the results, when looking up a fault code the art is in understanding what is wrong. A code reader for instance does not spell out "EGR valve needs replacing" so a lot of money could be wasted replacing parts that do not require replacing...

I have seen one instance where a non-Lexia gave a fault code related to an LPG setup. On a diesel motor!

Have been banging my head against a wall elsewhere on the internet with a fellow who's got a blocked cat, and is constantly misreading the symptoms as causes. Amazingly (?) he's been that stubborn for almost a year and has replaced a bunch of unneeded stuff.
